Early in the morning we started for Rishikesh. Rishikesh was a 7-8 hours drive from Chopta.
Rishikesh is a city set in the beautiful mountainous state of Uttarakhand and a location so serene that it can melt the heart of the gods. Often known as the Gateway to the Garhwal mountains, the city has a rich cultural past that blends with the modern city that it has become. There are a plethora of things that people in Rishikesh can do, varying from Bungee jumping to eating at some eclectic cafes.
Rishikesh is a city blessed with a rich cultural history, a beautiful mountain range and the serene Ganga river that flows through it. The city perfectly blends modern and a bygone era into one place.
There are a lot of undiscovered things that you can do by the city and one of them is camping by the Ganga river. Aspen Adventure Camp and Outbound Adventure Camp are two well known operators in the area. Camping cost us Rs. 1500 per tent.
We spent the day river rafting, bungee jumping and spent the evening at the ganga ghat watching the aarti.
Last day of our trip came to an end. We had a morning bus to New Delhi.
